Syntax Highlighting

A Wiki for a programming language site needs a powerful way of showing source code in readable fashion. Therefore we use an automatic syntax highlighter to for sources.

Use the "<syntaxhighlight> tag for FPC code (the Delphi language is the default highlighter language)

Note: "<source>" could also work but is not recommended (see highlighter docs)

More languages are supported; for a list, see the highlighter docs.

  • for XML code, use <syntaxhighlight lang="xml">.
  • for SQL code, use <syntaxhighlight lang="sql">.
  • for DOS/CMD window code, use <syntaxhighlight lang="dos">.
  • for bash/shell script code, use <syntaxhighlight lang="bash">.

The following example shows the use of the syntax highlighter in this Wiki:

<syntaxhighlight>
Program Test;
Uses Crt;

Var I : Integer;

Begin
  For I := 0 to 12 do
    WriteLn('Test ',I:2);
End.
</syntaxhighlight>

results in this output

Program Test;
Uses Crt;

Var I : Integer;

Begin
  For I := 0 to 12 do
    WriteLn('Test ',I:2);
End.

Below is an example for XML sources.

<syntaxhighlight lang="xml">
<xs:complexType name="DecimalWithUnits">
  <xs:simpleContent>
    <xs:extension base="xs:decimal">
      <xs:attribute name="Units" type="xs:string"
                    use="required"/>
    </xs:extension>
  </xs:simpleContent>
</xs:complexType> 
</syntaxhighlight>

results in

<xs:complexType name="DecimalWithUnits">
  <xs:simpleContent>
    <xs:extension base="xs:decimal">
      <xs:attribute name="Units" type="xs:string"
                    use="required"/>
    </xs:extension>
  </xs:simpleContent>
</xs:complexType>

For program output or other verbatim quotes please use the "<pre>" and "</pre>" tags.

Keyboard shortcuts

To display keyboard shortcuts use template Template:keypress:

{{keypress|Ctrl}}+{{keypress|F12}}

This will show as: Ctrl+F12

Note

To make text visible as note use template Note:

{{Note|This is note for reader}}

This will be displayed as

Note-icon.png

Note: This is note for reader
